U Ride Motorcycle Training is a proud sponsor of the California Motorcyclist Safety Program’s Motorcyclist Training Course (MTC).
U Ride has been offering high-quality, customer friendly motorcycle training in Costa Mesa since 1988. Our award winning staff and Instructors are dedicated to making your training experience with us fun and informative. And we encourage a “life-long learning process” with your motorcycling journey.
The goal of the Motorcyclist Training Course is to teach and reinforce the knowledge and skills needed for safe beginning-riding on the street so that we might prevent crashes and injuries.
The cost is $258 if you are 21 and older – $180 if you are 20 or younger.
Motorcycles and Riding Gear are provided in the cost for the course.
The MTC is a 16 hour course designed for the beginning rider, consisting of:
- 6 hours of classroom
- 10 hours of practice riding.
Classroom topics include:
- Rider responsibilities & preparation
- Gear choices
- Control operation and how to turn, stop and control operation
- Street riding strategies
- Reading the terrain
- Managing curves
- Survival maneuvers such as swerving and quick stops.
Skills are practiced progressively throughout the riding sessions. Starting out simple and layering on as the course moves forward. Maximum braking, swerving and safe cornering are practiced as your skills become more refined towards the end of the course.
Successful completion of the MTC will waive the skills test at the California DMV. *If you are under the age of 21, you MUST complete the MTC prior to obtaining a motorcycle permit in California.
